Instead of smoking it, we could one day use tobacco to power cars – thanks to a project at UC Berkeley, CA. A team of scientists are now using genetically modified tobacco leaves that produce oil.
The researchers have worked to isolate chlorophyll from the oil that the leaves produce so that the final product is clear and can be used to power diesel engines. This will offer an alternative to tobacco growers worldwide, as demand from the traditional industry that has used tobacco so far is lowering.
People have also used coffee to power cars since WWII – why not include tobacco?
